Kerry says Russia creating fear, intimidation in Ukraine
USA Today | March 30, 2014

Posted on 03/30/2014 5:23:11 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

"The United States is consulting with Ukraine at every step of this process, and we will not accept the path forward if the legitimate government of Ukraine is not at the table,'' Kerry said.

"I made clear the United States still considers the Russian actions to be illegal and illegitimate,'' Kerry said.

"...illegal and illegitimate,'' Kerry said.

He does know something about that.

“Having served in Vietnam - and being decorated I might add - I know how to talk to these clowns. Deep in the jungles of the Mekong Delta, I personally captured and interrogated the enemy. Believe me, Putin does not know who he’s up against.”

Of course he does.

Just as Russia considers the Maidan authorities in Kiev illegal and illegitimate.

What is Kerry going to do beyond tough talk?

What a joke Jim. Russia is creating fear on obama’s golf course. We are rudderless.

Buried deep in the text:

Also Saturday, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told Fox News there remained “a huge possibility that Russia could invade and seize Ukrainian territory.”

As a very last resort.

The Russians can let time and natural differences among the Western allies do their work for them.

The Soviet Union would have solved this problem by brute force. Post-Communist Russia is a good deal more sophisticated in addressing its geopolitical challenges.

"every step of this process"
"the path forward"
"seat at the table"

Where in the world does one go to learn to speak in such trite cliches? Such blah, blah, blah is the sign of a small mind.

With a little searching, I was able to find all the steps of the process he mentioned:

John Hanoi Kerry is well versed in fear and intimidation. His speeches in the 70s instigated anti war efforts and Kerry got Veteran's neighbors to intimidate and harass the veterans. Kerry never gave up intimidation accusing current Soldiers of being terrorists.

Seems like Russia is creating fear and intimidation in Washington, too, especially in the Whitehouse.

“The Soviet Union would have solved this problem by brute force. Post-Communist Russia is a good deal more sophisticated in addressing its geopolitical challenges.”

-You give the Russian thugs far too much credence. They throat punched a Crimean news station manager and forced him and his coworkers to sign resignations under duress , or else. See this article.


The Security Service of Ukraine said on March 31 that it had stopped a Russian man who investigators believe was planning to forcibly take over government buildings in Kyiv in an effort to destabilize the country.
